Evening Edition - November 27

November 27, 2019

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!  As many as 55 million Americans are expected to be traveling over the next few days, and with perfect timing, very nasty winter storms are expected to strike much of the northern half of the US, bringing freezing temperatures and heavy snowfall.  I hope that wherever you’re going for the holiday, you’re already there, and that you can snuggle in and stay awhile.  Keep an eye on the weather news, and if you’re in the path of winter storms, please take precautions.  And don’t forget to bring in your pets!

For those of you who think that Black Friday should be on Friday, and that Thanksgiving should be reserved for family and giving thanks to God for our blessings rather than standing in line to fight other people over discount appliances, here is a list of stores that plan to be closed on Thanksgiving so that their employees can spend the holiday with their families.  They will all be open on Friday, when you can patronize them to show your thanks to them for respecting Thanksgiving.

---------------------------

One of the more annoying traits of today’s Democrats (I know, it’s hard to narrow it down) is the condescension.  If you don’t agree with them, it’s always because you’re either evil or stupid. If they want to be diplomatic, they suggest you’re just ignorant, but possibly teachable.  That’s the thrust they’re taking with next week’s Jerry Nadler-led Impeachment 2.0 reboot.  They’re saying that obviously, the public that’s turning against impeachment just doesn’t understand the serious crimes against the Constitution represented by Trump thinking that he makes foreign policy rather than unelected Foggy Bottom bureaucrats, or his not wanting to give a pile of our tax money to a corrupt government that might simply steal it.  So they’re going to lecture us until we see the light.  At Christmas time.

I predict this will go over about as well as surprising your family with tofurkey on Thanksgiving.

While Nadler attempts to whip this dead horse back into Kentucky Derby contention, signs are that wiser heads among the Democratic establishment realize what a disaster this is and are desperate to back away quietly before they end up in the Senate, where real witnesses will be called to testify.  For instance, there was the strange case of Michigan Rep. Brenda Lawrence, who’s been calling for Trump’s impeachment practically since the minute he took office, then suddenly flip-flopped to censure, then after getting the predictable Twitter outrage, flip-flopped back to impeachment. 

https://www.westernjournal.com/dem-rep-holds-3-different-positions-impeachment-less-24-hours/

Despite Lawrence’s flip-flopping back and forth like a trout on a hot dock, several liberal newspapers, such as the Chicago Tribune, are suddenly running editorials suggesting censure instead of impeachment. I don’t know whether they’re trying to send a message to the Democrats, or if Democratic leaders put out the word to them to push this idea, but either way, someone smells disaster brewing on the impeachment front.  (Incidentally, does anyone else find it hilarious that a newspaper in CHICAGO would be horrified at the idea of a politician demanding a favor before handing out government largesse?  I don’t even believe Trump did that, but I really don’t believe anyone in Chicago would be offended by it. Isn’t that how Chicago is run?) 

One of the few voices of reason left in the Party, pollster Doug Schoen, is also urging fellow Democrats to get over their impeachment fever, vote for censure and move on.

What’s really behind this “censure” trial balloon?  The first post-hearing polls are out.  They show that the more Americans saw of Adam Schiff’s pathetically thin “case” against Trump, the less they favored impeachment (Schiff has a personality that’s tailor-made for untelevised, locked-door hearings.) And it’s not just Republicans and Independents who oppose impeachment.  Democrats are also curbing their enthusiasm. The erosion is so obvious, they’re even starting to notice it on CNN!  

https://www.foxnews.com/media/cnn-impeachment-polling-bade-democrats

Worst of all for Democrats, support for impeachment among Hispanics has dropped from 73% in October to 48%.  Among blacks, it’s plummeted from 58% to 37%. 

https://www.westernjournal.com/impeachment-support-plummeting-among-blacks-hispanics-story-unravels/

The only bright spot for Democrats in the new polls is that 86% of MSNBC viewers still want to impeach Trump.  Someone with a calculator, let me know: how many is 86% of three dozen people?

 

-----------------------------------

Here’s all you really need to know before casting your vote in 2020:

On Tuesday, House Democrats followed up their failed “impeachment” hearings by announcing yet another round of “impeachment” hearings. Not health care, infrastructure or passing the new trade deal, but more impeachment. On the same day, the Dow, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq all closed at record highs.  It’s the Dow’s 100th record high closing since Trump took office.

It gave me an idea for a campaign slogan I’d like to offer to the Democrats:  “Are you tired of winning yet?  Then vote Democrat!”

    Trump's secret strategy for the economy: keep the Congress busy with trivial pursuits so they don't have time to legislate. There is an inverse correlation between the amount of real work and the amount of government "work" that gets done.

    I stand corrected. About the ultimate victory, that is in God’s hands. It is in Heaven that we receive our full salvation.

    If the Democrats do stop the impeachment proceedings and move on, how exactly will they move on? I really doubt a flurry of bills will be forthcoming. They will just leech on with other ways to thwart the President.

  • Amelia Little

    11/28/2019 12:55 AM

    Exactly what are they thinking of censuring the President over? Tweets? I don't think I'm the only person who can't figure this out--then again, maybe I am. I wonder if I would be enlightened if I listened to msm? Nah, can't get a straight answer out of them. Seriously, though, I would appreciate your explaining this to me.

    Happy Thanksgiving!!!

    Also, please tell Sarah to run for governor of Arkansas. It would be wonderful to see her in that position.

    Isn't there ANYTHING we the people can do to force congress to do their JOB ? Please don't say vote them out or call you're congress person because we all know how that goes.

    The Democrats have forgotten they are Civil Servants of the American people, as they are neither
    " Civil or Servants ". Indeed, they honor us with their lips, but, their hearts are far from us.

    What happened to the Republicans' "Day of Questions" during the Schiff show?

  • JC Holland

    11/27/2019 09:23 PM

    I think President Trump should demand impeachment. That would allow Republicans to call Schiff and the other crooks to testify. That would expose them for all to see.

    I am really happy that people are finally figuring out that MSNBC CNN NYT etc. are as phony as Clinton coming close to winning the electoral vote in 2016. Hey Lefties U loss by a landslide. As more and more people turn away from these losing enterprises the GOP needs to put pressure on Pelosi to to put the trade agreement on the Presidents desk. A Reformed Immigration bill on the Presidents desk A Budget Bill On the Presidents desk you have lost a lot of time jobs and money during this year how much more losing can U take. Why keep the Country from winning in a HUGEEE way we are winning Lefty please get out of the way so Trump can put the petal to the metal so we can take more of your voters and turn them into winners let them go Lefty you have kept them losers long enough let them feel what winners feel like have them join us the GOP ALWAYS Trumpers we have not tired of winning its great we are happy we have more wealth we give more to charity we love people we don't silence people's speech as a matter of fact we don't being PC. Freedom Lefty give it a chance I think you will learn to love again.MAGA

    I’d say the current crop of Democrats running for president can do nothing but harm their party. But Bloomberg?. He is a skilled enough politician to have won three terms as New York mayor. I strongly dislike most of what he stands for. He has one advantage over Trump, in that he appears not influenced by the amazing disinformation put out by the energy industries with respect to global warming. Might I inform you that ALL PhDs are not fools, nor are they all Democrats. The effects of atmospheric components on earth’s temperature has been studied since the 1890’s. When one ignores what is happening to the planet one is at some disadvantage.

    We are watching the self destruction of a major political party through suicide.
